King Kong Pier

We've had a very unusual weather pattern here in southwest Florida - dense fog throughout most of the day along the coast from Naples up to Tampa where it caused some major disruptions: http://www.tampabay.com/news/weather/ships-delayed-visibility-low-as-fog-sets-in-again/2218865

Nevertheless, I've used to opportunity and headed towards the beach here in Naples to shoot some untypical Florida beach photographs.

In case you're wondering....

where I have been...

Well, a lot has changed in the past few weeks and months. I haven't really had a lot of time for photography but this doesn't mean my passion is gone, absolutely not.

About a month ago, I moved from Switzerland to Naples, FL with my family, left my corporate IT job that I had for 19 years and bought a small local business here in Florida. Most people think I'm crazy and that's ok.... you remember what Steve Jobs once said, right?

Here's to the crazy ones.....

Everything is still a bit messy and a lot of dust needs to be removed, the website is still the old one (don't go and look!), there is no online booking system, just the phone and there is not a lot of social media presence for that business, but this should change, soon, very soon and I plan to document all of this on the shared Google+ page so If you to see me fail succeed make sure to follow Captain CJ's Jet Pack Adventures here on Google+ and if not, just stay with me as I should be back posting pictures here, very soon.

And in case you're nearby, drop me a note....

Cheers from sunny Florida

+Ingo Meckmann - Will do!

Of course, a big regret for you is that you are at least 2 hours away from good hockey (Tampa).  There is a minor league team near you, but that's not the same as the NHL.

Congrats on your career change - I'm sure you will find great success!

Hockeymotions

A few weeks ago I started a new project on +Instagram with black and white #Hockey photography. I wanted to do something different than everybody else who shoots this great action sport in color. One reason I started this might be the very colorful (and ad-filled) jerseys that I don't really like but somebody needs to pay the bills, right?

So, anyway, if you like this kind of stuff, make sure to follow me on #Instagram  at http://instagram.com/meckimac

Oh, btw: The color pictures you see on my instagram feed are mostly live shots that I post during the games.

A Piece of Hockey on Fine Art Paper

Together with the Swiss Icehockey Club #EVZ, I'm running a bunch of  #Ricardo auctions with unique fine-art prints, each signed by the player/s on the photographs. The entire proceeds flow into the junior program of the best hockey club in Switzerland.

I personally guarantee authenticity and uniqueness of those prints with a signed certificate plus hologram on both the certificate and the prints.

Show me the Way

I brought my "old" Leica M8 with me today while hiking the woods and it was a good decision. This is an #infrared photograph for which the M8 is perfect due to its IR sensitivity. No conversion is necessary for this camera, only a B+W 092 filter and you get pretty much only IR onto the sensor.

On the streets of Naples, FL

It hasn't been a while since I've done street photography with my Leica but I finally found some time again today at the local chalk street art festival here in Naples, FL.

That's my boy!

Shooting a professional hockey game while getting filmed by Swiss national TV. When I was 10, I didn't even know what hockey is and I was still 10 years away from touching an SLR camera....

Brienzersee

I know I've been a bad citizen here lately and haven't posted for many weeks. The reason is actually quite simple. I'm in the middle of moving me and my family from Switzerland to Florida to start a new adventure there. Exciting times!!!

I will be announcing more details on what I'll be doing down in the Sunshine State, soon so stay tuned...

Welcome to the U.S. and by the way, my 3 x greatgrandfather (Johann Jacob Ruesch) emmigrated from Switzerlland to the U.S. with the Mormons in the early 1800s.

Lozärner Määs

I chose a rather abstract way to document this event in Lucerne, Switzerland. I bet +Martin Weibel's take will be much less colorful.... :)

As I'm writing this, there is just $400 to reach our goal of $30k to make the new book reality with 11 hours to go.

So who wants to be the one to push it over the finish line? It's going to be an amazing book for a great cause.
 
Amazing news about Plus One Collection III

It is with much joy for the last minute miracle of large donations we are writing you all to report that we are now at 93% funding for the publication of the Plus One Collection III. We still have 12 hours to raise the remaining funds, but looks like we're almost there and the book will become a reality! 

Let make it happen by spreading the word one more time. If you have additional funds and want to buy few more copies of the book for holiday gifts for your family and friends, now is a perfect time to do it, as we look to get the remaining 7% of funds. As it stands, only a small number of copies will go on sale after the book ships to all Indiegogo campaign supporters. 

Let's make it happen for Eliza, her family, and all others affected by Sanfilippo Syndrome-Type A who would be blessed by the cure.
